What did Saving Little Hearts do in 2009?

In 2009 Saving Little Hearts was able to double the number of care packages sent out in 2008. SLH sent out over 2000 surgery care packages to families whose child was having an open heart surgery. In 2010, our goal is to send out at least 100 surgery care packages every week.

We cannot do this without your support. Please sign up for our monthly giving program and help us reach out to more families showing them that they are not alone during such a dramatic time in their lives. Did you know that a child is born with a congenital heart defect every 15 minutes? Our hope is to reach out to as many of these children as possible but we need YOU to help.

Comments about our care package program from medical professionals:

"When I gave out my first care package, the mom and dad were so serious and burden laden. I handed them the bag and a transformation appeared on both of their faces. The momentary release of tension was better than any bottle of pills that could be prescribed."

- Whitney Partin, RN, MSN, CCRN LeBonheur Children's Medical Center

"The families of the babies in our unit come from all walks of life, including many who are underprivileged. No matter what their status in life, it is gifts such as yours that brighten their day. Your organization is to be commended for the wonderful work you do for the cardiac patients."

- William F. Walsh, M.D., Professor of Pediatrics, Chief of Nurseries Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt

Please know that every amount will make a huge difference. Show your support and sign up today. There are many families facing surgery every day. Won't you help us help them?
